Retirees from South Florida Community College were treated to a special viewing of John Kral’s “Cracker Cowboy” photography at the SFCC Museum of Florida Art and Culture (MOFAC) on Wednesday.

The SFCC Foundation, Inc., organized the program to connect with former employees and trustees. Dr. Norm Stephens, SFCC president, informed retirees about several important developments on the horizon, including the college’s new Bachelor of Science Degree in Supervision and Management (BAS-SM); a $900, 000 National Science Foundation grant that will launch the college’s new biofuels program; and the county’s decision to use College Drive as the future access road to the Sebring Parkway.

Don Appelquist, executive director, SFCC Foundation, expressed the foundation’s desire to host similar programs in the future. “We want to help retirees maintain some permanent contact with the institution,” Appelquist told the group. “We know that for many of you, SFCC was never just a job, it was a career, and it was part of your life.”

Afterwards, Joey Sacco discussed Kral’s photography exhibition documenting  the cowboy way of life, which once flourished in Florida.

Mollie Doctrow, curator, MOFAC, welcomes retirees to the program sponsored by the SFCC Foundation at SFCC MOFAC.
